Or so it seems for now.
The whole 6 weeks I was off I never really felt sleep deprived.
I mean I had a few moments where I passed out at 8, leaving the hubs to take over for awhile, but for the most part I survived on limited amounts of sleep.
During the day I wasn't much of a napper...but I didn't do a whole lot.
And now that I look back on it, I probably rested during the day way more than I thought.
Well 4 days into my first week back to work and I feel like a zombie.
Jamie's current night time schedule goes something like this.
Last bottle around 10, asleep by 11.
Up at 12 just for shits and grins.
We don't get changed. We don't get fed. We simply get rocked back to sleep.
Up around 3 for a bottle and a fresh set of pants.
Up again at 5.
By this point I'm pretty wore out so I cave and bring him into bed with us where I get 2 more glorious hours of sleep...plus some snuggle time. Probably not the best of habits, but he sleeps in his crib at all other times so I don't think it's a huge deal.
When you add up all my "naps," I am getting about 7 hours. In reality it feels like 3.
Whoever came up with that phrase "slept like a baby" obviously never had children.
